High School Teacher Gabriela Cortez Admits Sexual Relations with Two Male Students



Gabriela Cortez, 42-year-old former Spanish teacher at Roosevelt High School, Montebello, California, who was arrested in February 2012 for alleged sexual relations with two male students, has entered her plea to six felony counts of unlawful sexual intercourse.

Cortez, a Montebello resident , pled in open court which means she didn't accept a deal with the District Attorney's Office but threw herself on the mercy of the court.

Cortez was arrested in February after rumours about sexual activity between female teacher and her two students surfaced. According to prosecutors,between January 2009 and November 2010 Cortez had sex with two male students, ages 16 and 17, in her home in Montebello. The first boy stepped forward a because he wanted to get the incidents "off his chest." That student's confession resulted in the discovery of a second victim, and at the time detectives believed there still might have been be more out there, but no additional victims were found during the investigation.

The former teacher faces a maximum sentence of six years and four months behind bars, but the judge could also order probation with no jail time, according to Deputy District Attorney Hyunah Suh.
